“Working with Opalbond has been a really smooth process from start to finish. Together, we have been able to develop and launch our great tasting chocolate caramel crunch protein bar. Everyone who’s tried it thinks it’s the best tasting protein bar ever and incredibly, just 2g of sugar per 64g bar. I’m convinced this bar will be a big hit for NRG Fuel and we look forward to working with Opalbond in the future, bringing more innovative, high quality products to our customers.”
